Israel Herrero Sánchez, a student in Universidad Europea’s infrastructure management master's program, was one of the winners of the UICM award for creating an innovative project to promote sustainable development. The award was delivered by the Interprofessional Union of the Community of Madrid (UICM) during the National Conference on the Environment.

Israel’s project, called Application for an Intelligent Electric Network, was designed for Spain’s electric train network. It aims to create a smart energy grid to enhance the efficiency and reliability of the electricity demands of the network.
